Sales Auction Company held a public equipment auction on May 6 at its headquarters in Windsor Locks, Conn.

Hundreds of online and onsite bidders vied for nearly 1,100 lots of equipment from several companies and surrounding area dealers, contractors, municipalities and rental outfits.

Bidders came from all over the Northeast, including the Freundschuh family, who trekked down from Buffalo, N.Y. Tim Freundschuh brought his two sons – Hunter and Austin – who loved climbing aboard the equipment.

All six New England states were represented, along with states along the Eastern seaboard and beyond.

“This is a great place and a tremendous event,” said Carl Jefferson, who attended with his uncle from Exeter, R.I. “They do it up right here and we looked at a ton of great equipment, bid, and we will be back.”

Upcoming Sales Auction Company auctions will include a complete liquidation event on June 17 at its South Windsor, Conn., location. — CEG
